It was a great experience with great people! Tessa was Awesome! We especially enjoyed visiting the smaller wineries

Bruce_M

We had a fantastic tour with Jason. He was great fun and knowledgeable about the various wineries. It was a group of 12 strangers and we had a blast together. I will definitely use them the next time we are in Sonoma.

Samuel_G

This was our second time on a platypus tour. Last time in napa, this time Sonoma County. Our guide was friendly and kept a great vibe going. It was also nice interacting with the other guests.

MonaJags

We had a great time! Our tour guide, Kyle, was friendly and very knowledgeable and made the day fun. He selected 3 small boutique wineries where we got to meet owners and taste some great wine. I would highly recommend this tour!

Patricia_D

Our driver/guide was well informed and picked good wineries to visit. The Loxton vineyard owner gave us humorous, Aussie account of the trials of becoming a successful wintner. Great wines and history was had at each stop.

TonyP522

We had a great tour of three vineyards and learnt a great deal about both wine making and the Sonoma Valley. Lewis ('sorry if I've spelt that incorrectly - it's phonetic British spelling) was a wonderful guide with a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm for wine and it's making. All three vineyards were small, local producers and well chosen. I'd recommend Platypus Tours.

Missy

The driver made this trip very engaging and fun! She made the entire tour very fun and she was very accommodating

Gary, our stalwart guide/driver, picked us up at a convenient spot near where we were staying and took us (along with one other couple and a trio of friends) to three unique properties in the Sonoma Valley. So by Platypus standards it was a small group which made it that much more pleasurable, I expect. Each of the visits were amazing in their own way. The back stories of the wineries we visited were interesting, the spokespersons were engaging, and the selected wines were amazing. Clearly the highlight of our six-day visit to the area!

The tour was fun and a nice way to experience some smaller wineries that we wouldn’t have explored on our own. Sara was a great driver/guide- even took a little detour to stop at a French bakery in Glen Ellen. Lunch was good as the group was fun.

Rob was such a great tour guide. My sisters and I had such a great time on this small group tour. We went to some real cool wineries. I felt the wineries they chose were small and intimate which made the experience better. I had bad allergies and Rob continued to check in on me. He was very thoughtful to all of his guests. I loved that Rob kept track of all our wine and we didn't have to pack any wine out, Rob did that for us. Thank you Rob for a great experience! Highly recommend this company if you are looking for a wine tour.
